Selmi Group

Roasting Machinery and Equipment

Artisanal roasters, made in Italy, at the forefront of technology, compact and easy to use, delivering a perfect and constant roasting of coffee and nuts.

The strong bond and significant commonalities between the world of machinery for the processing of chocolate and that of coffee, nuts and cocoa bean roasters has led the company SELMI, in its constant search for technological evolution and as the world leader in the sector for over 50 years, to direct some of its planning and production resources over the past 15 years to the creation of machinery for the roasting of coffee and nuts.

Our roasters, available in 4 models with various production capacities, make use of the exclusive and patented Vertiflow System, which allows for a controlled and high quality roasting: the process works by suspending the product in air – a fluid bed – resulting in a uniform cooking from the exterior to the centre of the bean

Our objectives are primarily to:
- Offer the opportunity to industry professionals, via the use of ROASTER, to autonomously roast raw green coffee, hence making the blend offered in one’s own premises unique, with very interesting profit margins.
- Offer to one’s clients the possibility to add alongside the traditional roasting systems the possibility of an alternative cooking method, not only for coffee but also for nuts, cereals, cocoa beans and any desired product via small adaptations to the roaster.

We are furthermore able to design and create personalised semi industrial roasting systems complete with loading hoppers for green coffee, destoner machines for the removal of residual naturally occurring impurities from green coffee, sold by the traders of the raw products, containers for the degassing of coffee and machines for bagging the roasted product.

The professionalism of our company combined with our high quality and state of the art machines are the best guarantees that we can offer to those who choose Selmi to help them to carry out their own roasting.

In order to meet the needs of various production capacities, Roaster is available in the following models: Roaster 101, roaster 102, Roaster 106 and Roaster 120.

Vertiflow System

The exclusive vertiflow roasting system

This is an innovative and, to date, unique system available on the market for machines and equipment used for roasting. It unites the characteristics of high production rates, ease of use and compact dimensions to the best roasting to core ever tested. Designed and patented by the company Selmi.

The main characteristic that distinguishes it from traditional roasting systems is due to the fact that the transmission of heat, injected into the lower part of the containment chamber, is not carried out via the heating of the roasting chamber but via the injection of a temperature controlled air flow which allows the product contained therein to act as a heat conductor.

The previously compressed and heated air is channelled through a vertical and round section. The coffee is therefore roasted whilst constantly in suspension with cyclical and repetitive movement until the pre-set temperature is reached, which is measured via two probes. These probes will also be used to determine the end of cycle and the automatic discharge into the cooling section.

The absence of moving mechanical parts within the roasting chamber avoids damage to the raw material, which is unavoidable in other traditional roasting systems. The product will be homogeneously roasted from the core to the exterior, thus avoiding any humidity being left inside the product. It should also be noted that hazelnuts and coffee will be up to 95% decorticated at end of roasting.

NEW 2020: CoffeeLab

Roaster 101 with pneumatic system for the production of fresh coffee and espresso coffee in full view of the clientele

We are very excited to present Selmi’s new COFFEELAB: a concentration of technology and innovation for the roasting of the most loved and consumed product in the world: coffee.
Built on a wheeled stainless steel structure, it boasts of a pneumatic transportation system for green coffee which has been previously placed into the loading containers of the Roaster 101 for the roasting cycle. This is followed by pneumatic transportation of the roasted product to the containment chambers for the consumption of the fresh coffee, all of this happens automatically in full sight of the clientele.
The aromas released during the roasting process along with the considerable visual and emotional impact on the clientele will raise the standard of the premises where the machine is installed.
